carrying secretary of defense leon panetta to australia. pentagon spokesman george little told reporters secretary panetta asked the white house to postpone general allen's appointment as supreme allied commander in europe. >> on sunday the federal bureau of investigation referred to the department of defense a matter involving general john allen, commander of the international security assistance force, or i.s.a.f., in afghanistan. >> reporter: the matter involves 20,000 to 30,000 pages of information the f.b.i. delivered sunday to the pentagon's inspector general. one senior official says the documents include a couple of hundred e-mails between general allen and jill kelley, the same tampa socialite who triggered the petraeus scandal. the e-mails discovered in kelley's files date back to 2010 when allen served as deputy commander for u.s. central command in tampa. pentagon and f.b.i. sources have characterized the e-mails as "inappropriate" and "flirtatious." one senior official said, for example, kelley would write something like "saw you on television, you were terrific." allen woul
and bags as they are wrapping up their investigation. >> defense secretary leon panetta on route to australia was the first top administration official to comment on the petraeus departure. >> i think he took the right step, and i think it's important when you're director of the cia with all the challenges that face you, and have -- that personal integrity comes first and foremost. >> panetta a former cia director and the washington shuffle with panetta and clinton saying they want out of the second term. will john kerry now go to the pentagon? can susan rice be confirmed as secretary of state? and will nancy pelosi run for leader again? and what a welcome to washington the new class of congress arriving just in time for a classic d.c. scandal. and a different fall from grace, jon stewart, crowns himself the worst journalist in the world. >> anyone out there who thought i may have actual journalists instincts i give you a snippet of my interview. >> he loves serving, to be in the arena. i thought i was going to test him, he tested me, crushed his pelvis. he wanted to help me with

really around the world as secretary of state hillary clinton and defense secretary leon panetta both say our nato's allies aren't worried this investigation will hurt our mission in afghanistan in any way. joining us john bolton, former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and fox news contributor. ambassador, nice to see you again. >> good morning. glad to be with you, jenna. jenna: let's talk about when hillary clinton and leon panetta had to say. based on your experience, ambassador, overall what are the effects of personal scandal in international relations? is there any sort of fallout we should be watching? >> i think there can be fallout but at this point i think it would be premature to jump to any conclusions because the circumstances we're talking about are not full le known. i think one of the reasons that secretary panetta in particular has been at pains to say that general allen still has his confidence even though his nomination to head up the european command has been put on hold is because he is still in theater in afghanistan. i think general petraeus's problems are a little bit
panetta has arrived and held talks with his thai counterpart. the u.s. is seeking closer relations with asean nations, apparently part of its strategy to counter the rising military power of china in the asia-pacific region. the two sides issued a joint statement after the meeting, saying they would tap into a u.s. program that supplies excess armaments to friendly countries. armed naval vessels and f-16 fighter jet engines are likely to be included. the u.s. had stopped the flying arms to thailand because of political turmoil, including a military coup. >>> pakistan says it's ready to free a number of taliban prisoners in its custody. pakistan supported the ousted taliban regime in afghanistan and is believed to retain some influence over the militant group. the afghan government has requested their release as it tries to engage the taliban in peace negotiations. from islamabad, nhk world, islam reports. >> reporter: an envoy visited islamabad this week for talks with pakistani political and military leaders. he is the chair of the high peace continue sewell and leads efforts to o

there. >> you will get a swing at that. let me push back on this, a.b. leon panetta, at a news conference at pentagon several week ago said we knew about this. we had forces in the area. but the decision of general dempsey, head of joint chief, myself, general ham was that we coulden in the the time involved there move forces to the area. >> there have been conflicting accounts on what happened and whether or not the request was made, whether it was turned down. he says today for the first time my orders were. i don't know that he said he was doing that night and what transpired in those seven hours. in terms of what was -- >> we did know he met because they were already there for a meeting. meeting with top officials. >> but he has not explained how the hours unfolded. what you see right now is a focus on capitol hill on david petraeus. they are hoping for a lot of clarification from his testimony. i think what you also see because, you know, there was no reporter asking today could you walk up through the seven hours on september 11? you will see a lot of heat on hillary clin
't you send out the secretary of state or the cia director or panetta or somebody who did know. he is defending the miss terrorist in distress. they look positively feminist in comparison the patronizing attack on the two senators who would effect the girl which was intended in his tone. this is all usual if you attack pride it will strike you on that. it was clearly defensive it was also a stone wall. after all what she said was absolutely completely misleading. >>> at the same news conference fox's ed henry asked the president to address the families of the americans killed in that attack about whether he issued any orders in the lives. we will play you a response to that lart in the show. >> right now it is time for the weather update with janice dean. janice keeping an eye on the storm front again that could hit around thanksgiving janice. i know you are worried about this one but there might be good news on the horizon. we need good news. i know we have a busy travel week next week. let's talk about what's happening right now and what could happen over the weekend. we have som
positions were just that. leon panetta calling for ethics training for military officers. >> that's right. in a memo september to the joint chiefs of staff is asking them to brain storm on ways to keep officers out of trouble. the kind of trouble that has tarnished the military's reputation for integrity and character. the memo was the product of internal pentagon discussions that began before petraeus announced he was resigning. the reason scandals that ensnared petraeus and john allen have only added to the urgency of this review. at the same time, panetta said he still retains full confidence in general john allen, that while his promotion to become supreme allied commander of europe has been put on hold while the d.o.d. inspector general investigates hundreds of allegedly provocative e-mails that he exchanged with jill kelly. >> what i don't want to do is to try to characterize those communications because i think -- i don't want to do anything that would impact on their ability to conduct an objective review of what was contained in those e-mails. >> this type of ig investigation us
at this moment? bill: the last man to head the cia was leon panetta. petraeus took over from him when he took the job as defense secretary. now panetta was asked about the situation on his way overseas late last night. roll this. >> first, obviously it was a, it was a very sad situation to you know, have a distinguished career like that end in this manner, and my heart obviously goes out to him and to his family but i think he took the right step and i think it's important when you're director of the cia with all of the challenges that face you in that position that, you know, that personal integrity comes first and foremost. bill: so secretary panetta was also asked by reporters if the fbi should have alerted key members of congress about the investigation sooner? panetta saying that is something that should be looked at. martha: well the fbi is now preparing a timeline of its investigation to respond to lawmakers who think that they were told too late. this is it what we know so far according to a senior member of the obama administration. on wednesday the director of national intelligence
's exhausted, understandably so. leon panetta who come phaout commutes from washington to california he wants out. he's over 70 and wants to row tire. timothy geithner the treasury secretary wanted out a while ago and was pressed to say. i would think in the case of panetta and clinton that republicans will be unhappy to see them go because they are pretty popular up on capitol hill, a lot of respect for both of them. obviously hillary clinton with the libya situation there is some criticism there, generally speaking i think conservatives have been happy with a liberal democratic president having people like hillary clinton and panetta running national security. geithner not as popular with conservatives. and eric holder definitely because of fast and furious and other policies not as popular with conservatives. martha: it race raises the questions in all four of those spots, who do you think are some of the names that we might see tpulg those spots, chris? >> the most interesting one, i guess, is susan rice,s u.n. ambassador was considered one of the frontrunners to be the secretary of state

the airplane of leon panetta flying overseas that upon john allen, the general in charge of the troops in afghanistan, was now under investigation for potentially inappropriate e-mails and communications with jill kelly, who is the tampa socialite-- it's so hard, you really need a flow chart-- very dramatic, very tailed senior denseffial talking on background. but today, leon panetta was saying we're not coming to any conclusions. he was out on camera saying he's a great guy, and a great leader. and i think he got pushed back from the white house that probably wasn't that happy they went out and kind of threw john allen under the bus so quickly. but i-- you know, on first blush, this is nothing like petraeus. on the other hand, you've got a general in afghanistan back and forth, 12emai a day with this socialite in tampa who they say are friends of theirs. i think there's still a possibility that some e-mails may have been inappropriate. that's why doing this investigation, that's why they don't want to clear him right away. it's also that issue of when you think about it, going into pr

, even secretary panetta recently gave a speech, and according to press accounts officials at dod have suggested that iran has been behind a number of cyber attacks in the middle east in recent months. so i think with that in mind, you see an international response of countries and organizations like nato, the u.n., former soviet bloc countries, there's a group called the shanghai group from china, all trying to struggle a bit with how to think about how to use cyber weapons and how to use cyber warfare capabilities in the future, and how those ideas, what happens with those ideas when they hit our international legal norms that we can use to over the past number of decades. the u.n. charter, what prompts a defense of a nation state. you see here, and there are lots of examples like this to the u.s. 2010 national security strategy describing particular serious. the russians have also come up with their own statements about when force can be used in cyberspace. you see this in the uk, canada. most major militaries, especially western countries, are articulating strategies about what doe

, something they needed to look into it. obviously that has spurned leon panetta to look into it. we spoke with a source close to kelley who went on to say there wasn't any kind of a sexual relationship between these two, but did not say they were completely innocent, either and they say they wouldn't try to dissuade anyone that there might have been some flirtatious nature and depending on your point of view, you might find them inappropriate or not. but as i mentioned, no one has seen the specific contents of these e-mails just yet. >> obviously, so much as you say may depend. i know you've talked to people familiar with that relationship, but so much will depend on the wording and what was in there. we hear descriptions of jill kelley. rich socialite, socialite, lavish lifestyle, but you've taken a look at that and the financial records for the kelleys and it doesn't exactly add up, does it? >> reporter: jill kelley, on the surface and people who had seen her at various parties and events, all the different fund raising things she had done, say they never really knew this, but there is
